esXpress 3.5 Product Comparison
esXpress radically alters the notion of how to protect data in virtual infrastructures in one simple way: they use the virtual infrastructure to back itself up! This innovative approach enables esXpress to provide best of breed data protection functions without the use of VCB, Proxy Servers or VM Agents.
esXpress uses virtual backup appliances (VBAs) - small virtual machines - that can be deployed in minutes on an ESX server to autonomously conduct hot full or "virtual full" backups of all your Virtual Machines. esXpress VBAs operate outside of the ESX console, leveraging a virtual appliance architecture and our own innovative disk throttling so backups can be run during business hours with no impact on VM performance on the ESX server. And esXpress backs up virtual disks at the block level, delivering incremental backup that can be de-duplicated at the source before being sent to one or more local and/or remote storage targets simultaneously. The result? Backups are smaller and faster, storage capacity lasts longer, and your entire infrastructure - VMs, hosts and networks - performs better. Read on to learn more about:
